Five years ago, Chai and a few of her girlfriends walked over to the Lyon Street Steps for some afternoon tea. She thought her boyfriend Ashwin was at home halfway across the world in London, but in fact, he was walking up from the bottom of the steps, ready to surprise her with a marriage proposal… and the rest is history.
Now happily married as husband and wife, they decided to celebrate five years since she said yes by going back to the exact spot for some proposalversary photos. These two are so freakin’ adorable and endlessly in love that being with them made me feel like it was their proposal day all over again! [ read more … ]
What a cute proposal: at the end of a beautiful day together, Neil and Kristina ended up at the Crissy Field beach, where he planned to surprise her with his proposal. Their French bulldog Marlon even came along to witness the moment, and he was the best. I loved how he paid complete attention to his parents — the look on his face seems to be saying, “hey Mom and Dad, I don’t know what’s happening but this looks important!” [ read more … ]
We’ve been involved in quite a few elaborate proposal stories, but Kabir’s plan involved shoots on three different days — definitely a very exciting first for us. If I had to pick one thing that really stood out about his proposal to Reet, it’s how absolutely meticulously he planned every move and every turn, and how it would eventually culminate in the actual Big Sur surprise proposal. As photographers, we really appreciated the extra thought and planning he put in, and we can only imagine how much Reet appreciated it. [ read more … ]
Julia & Chuck were the most laid-back, relaxed couple. They took no time at all to warm up in front of our cameras (despite the super cold weather!), and knew just how to make each other smile and laugh. I kind of see where their dog’s super chillaxed nature came from! Bayla just walked around and did her own thing, photobombing her parents whenever she thought necessary, and occasionally looking at me for a frame or two. [ read more … ]
Hank and Jill will be getting married later this year in Taiwan! We took some classic wedding portraits in the grand interior of the San Francisco City Hall and by the Golden Gate Bridge, some really fun photos at Potrero Hill with the city skyline in the background, and a few cute walking photos by the water at Sutro Baths.
